How to Dry an Echo in the Bathroom
An Echo device in your bathroom is an effective way to control smart home devices and enjoy music during showering, bathing or brushing your teeth. But be mindful that Amazon Echo isn’t waterproof; therefore it should be kept out of contact with water and humidity. However, should it become wet accidentally follow these tips to dry it and ensure its functionality.
Where Is the Best Place for an Echo Device in the Bathroom? In general, there are some places you should avoid placing an Alexa device in the bathroom that are likely to become infested with bacteria and wet environments, such as near your toilet where germs could gather or on sinks or in showers where moisture could collect. Instead, find somewhere safe from moisture where it won’t get wet such as on shelves or corners in your room – that way everything stays completely dry!
Many people use Echo devices in the bathroom to manage their morning routine, such as setting an alarm, turning on lights, or beginning their coffeemaker. Others simply enjoy listening to favorite songs or audiobooks while showering, bathing, or brushing their teeth. Thanks to its many skills and integrations with other smart products, your Echo in the bathroom offers much potential!
Your Echo can add ambience and relaxation in the bathroom with spa-like music through Alexa skills like Zen Sounds Alexa skill, which features hour-long audio clips designed to soothe both body and mind during showering, bathing or getting ready in the morning. Another way Alexa can help is with smart mirrors like Hauschen Home Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi that can be controlled using voice control while adapting lighting preferences according to voice command.
As another advantage of having an Echo in your bathroom, having voice purchasing enabled on Alexa will allow you to quickly order toiletries and beauty products when running out while taking a shower. In order for this feature to work effectively, make sure your Alexa app has voice purchasing activated while making sure she remains out of direct sunlight as to prevent her getting wet!
If you’re concerned that someone may be listening in on your shower or bathtub conversations, many Echo devices feature microphone mute buttons so you can easily muffle them when necessary. With an Echo Show with camera capability, you can even hide its screen so no one can spy on you while in the tub or shower!
Be mindful that your Echo is not waterproof and should be kept away from moisture and liquid, which could damage and reduce its life. In case your device does get wet accidentally, unplug it immediately to allow it to dry before plugging it back in; your device should continue working normally unless any major damages have occurred.
